West Midlands residents encouraged to nominate a charity to receive share of £1 million

Residents in the West Midlands can nominate a good cause to receive £1,000 as part of Benefact Group’s Movement for Good Awards.

Now in its fifth year, the ‘Movement for Good Awards’ will once again see more than £1million gifted to charities up and down the UK and Ireland.

Since the awards began, people in West Midlands have submitted over 47,100 nominations and 26 West Midlands based charities have benefited from valuable donations.

While the pandemic and the current economic climate has had an adverse effect on cash donations, the amount of people choosing to volunteer their time for a good cause is rising.

From today, West Midlands residents can nominate a charity online at movementforgood.com.

The Movement for Goods Awards has gifted over £4 million to charities in the UK and Ireland since the initiative started.

Winners will be drawn at random and the more times a charity is nominated the more chance it has of being selected.

150 winning charities will be announced from 1 June, with a further 150 revealed in September. Further gifts will be awarded throughout the year. Mark Hews, Group Chief Executive at Benefact Group, says:

“We are immensely proud to be supporting many hundreds of charities through our Movement for Good Awards for the fifth year running.

“We know that £1,000 can make a huge difference so we’re asking that people give a minute of their time to nominate a cause they care about to receive an award. Owned by a charity ourselves, charitable giving is at the heart of what we do and all of our available profits go to good causes.

“With financial strain continuing to impact many households the Movement for Good Awards represents a great way for people to continue to support causes close to their hearts, without worrying about an additional cost.

“Any charity can win no matter how large or small and even with just one nomination. So find a minute, jump online and nominate – because that small amount of time is invaluable for charities.”


Benefact Group has donated almost £200 million to charitable causes since 2014 and has just been recognised as the third biggest corporate giver in the UK. The organisation aims to reach £250 million in donations by 2025.
